x=$4 ans. for the price of the children tickets. 4+8=$12 ans. for the price of the adult tickets. Proof: 7*12+2*4=92 84+8=92 92=92

it says that adult has to cost more than the child ticket so therefore all of the big numbers are adult tickets and all of the small are kids. what i did is i saw that there where 4 adults and 2 kids so i got on my calculator :D and i did this.\[12\times4=48 + 9\times2=18\]

Without solving, choose the correct solution by deciding which choice satisfies the given conditions. At the local convenience store, 3 bags of chips and 7 containers of dip cost $31. However, 6 bags of chips and 3 containers of dip cost $18. What is the cost of one bag of chips and one container of dip? chips = $3; dip = $5 chips = $1; dip = $4 chips = $1.50; dip = $3.50 chips = $2; dip = $3

ok so we know that the answer choice has to be correct for both problems instead of just one another

so what i did was i looked at you answers and i did this it says At the local convenience store, 3 bags of chips and 7 containers of dip cost $31. However, 6 bags of chips and 3 containers of dip cost $18. i looked at the answer choices chips = $3; dip = $5 chips = $1; dip = $4 chips = $1.50; dip = $3.50 chips = $2; dip = $3 and i looked at the first one and it says dip= $5 and i looked at your first problem 3 bags of chips and 7 containers of dip cost $31. and i multiplied 5times7 and got 35 see now i know that the first answer is wrong because it already goes over what its suppose to equal witch is 31$
 one year ago

mtmb11Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
then i did the second answer witch is chips = $1; dip = $4 so i got the dip amount witch is 4 and i multiplied that by 7 witch is 28 then is looked at how much the chips cost witch is 1 dollar per bag and it says that it has 3 bags so i added 28 plus 3 and u get 31 so that means answer 2 is correct for the 1st problem. for the second problem 6 bags of chips and 3 containers of dip cost $18. i did the same thing i did with the first problem i multiplied 4times3 equals 12 plus 6=18 and therefore your answer for this problem is chips = $1; dip = $4
